The ad is a little short on specifics, but seems like a good price.

I've always liked the orange.

I thought the 40's were all yellow. Did they make 18's in orange too ?

Most 40th boats (primarily 22s) were yellow.

I think they made about 40 22s.
Almost all were yellow, but I'm aware of at least on red one.

I think they made 11 18s.
Most were yellow, at least one was beige and just one (hull #7, mine) was light blue.

I think they made just 3 16s.
To the best of my knowledge, orange was only used on the 16's.

I'm pretty sure the Port Carling boat is this one:
83154

All hail the mighty greenback......

When I think of Donzi Classics, I think most I have seen have been Red with Yellow a distant second...

The Orange works for me though...

I've got a friend with a red 18 Classic splash, Tonzi maybe? Anyway, he's thinking of selling and I have had thoughts of buying, repowering, and painting it orange...

That orange 16 is cool
I wonder how much work to bring it back to the U.S. Looks like it's in Ontario

I'd favor an 18 over a 16 if for nothing else the 2+3 seating.

2+3 seating makes that orange boat vary desirable IMHO.

Why aren't the fuel fills on the same side?

The Blue boat obviously belongs to a democrat..hence the fuel fill on the left :biggrin.: DJ

Ha!
The owner of the blue boat is technically a registered Independent (albeit in a very blue state).

My old Ski Sporter was center fill and it was never really a problem.
The side fill is, of course, more convenient on the trailer at the gas pump.
But 90% of my fill ups are on the water and center or side gas caps are an easy reach.

Left, Right, Center - it's all good.
Just don't be a hater
;)

Back on topic: If I were looking for a nice, clean and unique 16 at a very good price (IMO) - the orange boat would be on my shortest list.

I looked long and hard at that boat!
It was for sale about 2 miles from my house.......and was in a 9++ condition.
The Number was #001.

And it was YELLOW.

If it was an 18 I would have dropped my card on them right then and there!
